Of course! ;) I just prefer more dialogue heavy puzzles, like getting past a guard or said gorilla. But I did like the general setting of the temple.

I also remember this fondly as a solid genre entry. What struck me as slightly weak was the fairly artificial puzzle design. Mostly, it is a little unimaginative and feels clumsy at times.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Yes I did play the floppy version in the mid nineties when I was a teen, and I loved it. Still do!

I love the gorilla scene too, it's quite fun ;)

And that the game took a dive in the last act in the temple, because the puzzles where very… artificial.

I played this a couple of years ago and there are two things I distinctly remember about it: The Gorilla, because it is a really cool scene, with an not so obvious, yet downright simple solution. And that the game took a dive in the last act in the temple, because the puzzles where very… artificial.

At the end of the day I quite enjoyed playing it. I really liked the setting and the ending (because it was so over the top). So I agree with you: It's a great game, a somewhat overlooked classic.

Did you play it back when it was new?
